The Sol Bra is a simple, classic bikini shaped bra.

The construction of the cups is simple, with different options for how you want to knit the straps and the band around your rib cage.

Depending on what kind of yarn you choose for The Sol Bra, and what kind of straps you want, it can be used as a bikini on beach days, as a comfortable bra or a decorative top in the warmer months.

The Sol Bra is knitted from the top down. First, the two cups for the bust are knitted. They are knitted separately, using increases then the band is double knitted until it has the desired length and is then mounted on the cups.

At the end, the sts for the straps are collected and are knitted in the desired length and style you prefer. This could be adjustable straps, normal straps, straps that tie around your torso or as a halterneck.

The Sol is knitted after your individual size but an estimated yarn usage based on S (M) L (XL) XXL is written below.

    Frequently asked questions

    How does the individual sizing work?

    This differs from pattern to pattern, but oftentimes we ask you to measure underneath your bust and across your bust. Then we offer a calculation based on the knitting tension and this in turn tells you e.g. how many stitches you should cast on for your band. 

    Other times, it’s measuring the cups to your body and stopping when you feel they give the coverage you prefer. For some of our patterns we have created an Excel sheet where you simply type in your measurements and it provides you with the amount of stitches, cast-ons ect. Going forward we will optimise this and add it to more patterns. 

    Can I knit in other types of yarn than cashmere?

    Of course you can! 

    We recommend cashmere because while researching many different yarn types, cashmere was the yarn that was the softest against the skin for the longest duration of time. Also cashmere on small needles tends to give a more tight knitted, elegant look, that we feel are perfect for our designs.But as long as you match the knitting tension to whatever yarn you are using, you can use whatever yarn you want. 

    How much support do your bras give?

    The bras give the same support as a soft, wireless bra. However there are no strap adjustments in the patterns yet, so we generally recommend you knit the straps 5-10 cm shorter than you normally would, so they can ease.

    I have a bigger bust, will your bras work for me?

    Our bras are meant as a soft, wireless alternative to regular bras.  If you need more support for your bust than a soft bra can give you, we suggest you wear a regular bra underneath your nakedknit bra.
